Please make sure to download the latest stable Centmin Mod version. You can find version change log here.
First read the FAQ and following info pages for Nginx, MariaDB MySQL, PHP (php-fpm) and CSF Firewall (highly recommended to install when prompted). These will give a better understanding of the Centmin Mod setup.
Preferably, use CentOS 6.0 - 6.3 operating system where possible. Centmin Mod has only just started testing with CentOS 6.4 so needs more time testing. If you want to test CentOS 6.4 yourself on a test server first, you will need to edit centmin.sh and change the tested version line before installing and/or running centmin.sh.
You can provide feedback and suggestions on Centmin Mod Google+ Community
If possible, setup a test server or virtualised server via Virtualbox or VMWare to test out Centmin Mod before doing install on live server. For quick tests, you can easily setup a 512MB memory, 16GB hard disk storage Secured Cloud VM server instance using SecuredServers.com Cloud with costs starting from US$0.025 per hour. Benchmarks on Secured Cloud VM instance here.
Secured Cloud VM setup tip: To make your Centmin Mod install web accessible on Secured Cloud VMs, they have their own firewall enabled in Secured Cloud VM customer admin area that only allows port 22 and 3389 by default. For Centmin Mod installs, you can disable Secured Cloud VM's firewall and let Centmin Mod CSF firewall take over.
You'll need a VPS or dedicated server with full root user + SSH2 telnet access to install Centmin Mod. Logged in as root user via SSH2 telnet type these commands:
cd /usr/local/src wget http://vbtechsupport.com/centminmenu/centmin-v1.2.2-eva2000.22.zip
2. Extract files and change to centmin-v1.2.2mod directory and chmod +x centmin.sh bash script.
unzip centmin-v1.2.2-eva2000.22.zip cd centmin-v1.2.2mod chmod +x centmin.sh
3. Run centmin.sh menu based installer and if this is first time installing, select option #1 for Centmin Install. If you are upgrading a server which already previously had Centmin Mod installed, you DO NOT need to run option #1, instead run option #4 and then #5 for upgrading Nginx web server and upgrading PHP.
